Tooth Protection at Healthy Smiles Dental in Lancaster, PA includes fitting with nighttime mouth guards and sports mouth guards
Do you grind your teeth? Do you have unexplained headaches or even migraines? Can you see that your teeth are wearing and chipping? Perhaps you clench or grind your teeth at night.
Statistics show that over 40% of Americans clench or grind at night. This bruxing causes premature wear of your teeth, chips or fractures to your teeth, and even gum recession. In some cases, it can cause breakdown of the Temporal-Mandibular Joint (TMJ).
Our team at Healthy Smiles Dental has been trained to recognize the signs and symptoms of clenching and grinding. If we notice these symptoms we may recommend a night guard for you.
Each night guard is custom made using impressions of your teeth. These guards are much smaller in size than those that can be purchased over the counter. The result is a better fitting appliance and a reduction in TMJ pain, headaches, and tooth wear.
Sports Mouth Guards
Trauma from a sports injury can cause extensive damage to your teeth. Help avoid this by having a custom made sports guard made just for you. A custom made sports guard is not as bulky as the "boil-and-bite" versions at the drug store. And they fit better - so they stay in place better.
Sports guards cushion your teeth so that trauma to the mouth does not cause fracture or loss of your teeth. You can even pick your school colors.
If you have braces, this is almost a must-have!
Parents, this is a must for your sports active kids! Call today to get started!
